Jordan Street is an east-west street in Pensacola. Before streets north of Wright/east of 8th Avenue were named, that part of Jordan Street was named 18th Street.

Jordan Street's westernmost end is at Glenwood Avenue; from that point it travels one block easterly to Border Street, where it is interrupted by development. Jordan resumes for one block between Grandview Street and Wentworth Street before being interrupted again. Jordan resumes once more at W Street, and from that point travels easterly uninterrupted to A Street. To continue on Jordan, one must travel south on A Street a short distance. East of A Street, Jordan is one-way eastbound, and continues as such through 9th Avenue. East of 9th Avenue, Jordan continues uninterrupted as a two-way street to its eastern terminus at Escambia Avenue.
